What to Do When the Air Conditioning Goes Out in Bakersfield Prior to AC Repair

You’re in the middle of a heat wave and you wake up sweating in your bed. The first thought to go through your head is, “Why in the world has my air conditioner not kicked on?” Of course, you don’t want to leave yourself in a predicament like this where it feels like you’re doomed to suffer until morning to schedule AC repair, but there are a handful of things you can inspect, as well as a handful of things you can do, to stay on your toes and prepare for a situation like this.

Before You Experience Problems:

  • Air conditioner service. Warmer nights and AC repair can’t always be avoided, but having annual air conditoner service completed can help you avert a toasty predicament.
  • [Compile|Pull together|Gather]21] fans. Set aside some room in a closet, drawer or another easily accessible area for fans and any number of other accessories to keep you cooler while your air conditioner is out. It might seem bothersome or unnecessary now, but it will be a relief when you need it most.

After You Suspect Your Air Conditioner Quit Operating:

  • Check the circuit breaker. There’s a chance that the breaker to your air conditioner could have been tripped by a power surge or for some other reason. If this is the case, turn the breaker back on and you might be set. If the breaker is turned off and you have switched it back on but your air conditioner still isn’t operating, give us a call to arrange an appointment for AC repair.
